This pattern goes by so many names. Some of them are World Without End, Periwinkle, and Hummingbird. I've wanted to make it for a while now, and yesterday I came across a paper piecing pattern in an old Miniature Quilt Ideas Magazine from Spring 2003. The block is 3" finished, and the quilt is made up of 16 blocks.
I've decided to call my little quilt Star of Hope. Because right now, I am in need of hope...and prayers. My sprained ankle isn't getting any better, and tomorrow I am going for a CT and ultrasound to determine if it's actually something called a Lisfranc fracture. My doctor warned me not to Google it, so of course I did, and I was immediately sorry for having done it. It's not pretty.
Please keep me in your thoughts and prayers.
